Patients are, right now, researching treatment options, weighing alternatives for care, managing their symptoms, and looking for ways to connect with others who have this rare brain tumor. Where do they go? How do they proceed?
For nearly 40 years, the Acoustic Neuroma Association has provided access to critical information, offered opportunities to engage with leading medical professionals, and developed a far-reaching, supportive network of fellow patients and caregivers. Our most urgent mission – serving as a comprehensive, trusted resource throughout the AN community – continues as our unwavering priority.
The financial support the ANA receives makes a remarkable difference in how we serve our mission, in our ability to support each and every patient during their AN journey.
Here are just a few examples of how your contribution makes an impact:
The ANA provides patients and caregivers with a network of support groups and peer-mentors – along with an online Discussion Forum – so valuable support is within reach.
We’ve established – and continue to build – strong relationships within the medical community. The ANA partners with leading experts who eagerly share their knowledge and research through our website, social media platforms, and in NOTES, our quarterly newsletter.
We engage with AN programs in medical centers around the country to host our series of in-person patient education conferences, webinars, and Facebook Live events.
We invest every year in cutting-edge research with top medical centers, doctors, and scientists, and in studies related to quality-of-life, balance, hearing, and other related effects of acoustic neuroma.
In making a contribution, you are supporting our mission to continue as the premier resource for the AN community. The ANA must be there for those asking – for those searching – for help. We hope you will join us in making a difference!
